Góngora/Picasso: Graphic Poetry at the Meadows Museum
Meadows Museum
5900 Bishop Boulevard,
Dallas, TX

Ticket Price: $10 adults $8 seniors $4 students
The Meadows Museum will treat visitors to a display of its copy of Picasso’s Vingt Poëmes (Twenty Poems), an artist’s book featuring 20 sonnets by famed Spanish poet Luis de Góngora y Argote. Jointly acquired by the museum and the Bridwell Library in 1975, this edition is one of 15 deluxe copies comprised of the book itself and a proof set of all the plates printed on vélin du Marais paper. Nineteen full-page etched female heads complement the sonnets; with the remaining full-page image, Picasso pays homage to both Góngora and Velázquez by recreating the latter’s famous 1622 portrait of Góngora, concurrently on display in the Meadows exhibition Diego Velázquez: The Early Court Portraits. For information: 214-768-2765 or www.smu.edu/meadowsmuseum
